This may not be the best thing to write about right now, but there’s nothing else. Former Anaheim Ducks draft pick Justin Schultz is tearing up the AHL this season with the Oklahoma City Barons, the AHL affiliate to the Edmonton Oilers. We all the know the story of how he has ended up in Edmonton, so I’m not going to piss you off anymore than you already are right now.
Schultz was named AHL Player of the Week last week with the Barons. In just two games last week, Schultz registered three goals and one assist for four points. That brings his total point count to six, with four total goals and two total assists. To be honest, I’m not surprised he has played so well. There’s no denying his talent, unfortunately.
Kyle Palmieri is another AHLer with a total of six points, except he has two goals and four assists in the six games. Another Norfolk Admiral that has a high rank among the top goal scorers is newcomer Corey Elkins. In his first year back in North America, Elkins has been a nice surprised, posting three goals in four games played. He is tied with quite a few players with three goals, the co-leaders both have five goals.
